"To Catch a Trader" on Frontline can be seen on Thursday, January 9th, at 7:00 p.m.

FRONTLINE goes inside the dramatic, unprecedented hunt that uncovered vast insider trading at Wall Street hedge funds, including SAC Capital, which recently agreed to plead guilty to what prosecutors called “insider trading that was substantial, pervasive, and on a scale without precedent in the history of hedge funds.”

In just over two decades, Steven A. Cohen has amassed a gigantic fortune: a sprawling 35,000-square-foot mansion on Connecticut’s gold coast; a $62-million beach house in the Hamptons; and several New York apartments, including a $115-million mid-town duplex – all of them furnished with some of the world’s most expensive art. How did he do it? From small-time options trader to King of Wall Street hedge fund managers, FRONTLINE investigates Cohen and his company, SAC Capital, and other Wall Street characters with never-before-seen video and incriminating FBI wiretaps.
